Today we went on our delayed from yesterday canal cruise, we chose one that will take us up the Saint Martin canal. Arrived at 9:30 for a 9:45 start, we cruised up the Seine for about 15 minutes, past the side of Basilica Notre-Dame then turned left into the first lock which raised us up 7 meters, very interesting. Over the course of the next two hours we went through another 7 locks, raising us up from the river Seine level 27 mtrs. The Trip did not actually take us far, maybe 15-20 klms but it was really good to see this system. Also in a number of locations where there was a road over the canal in front of the lock, the road bridge also swung open. When we reached our destination which was Parc de Villette, we walked a bit, found a baguette shop, purchased some lunch and went into a beautiful park & had a picnic. We then caught a bus back into Chatelet & home. A great day again, tomorrow morning we leave Paris ….
